* While Creator/DavidLynch's primetime crime drama ''Series/TwinPeaks'' is well-regarded as one of the greatest TV shows of all time in the USA, it's become something of a CultClassic in recent years. However, the show was ''huge'' in Japan, spawning coffee commercials starring the shows cast, references in various Japanese media, and it even [[http://nintendods.com/iwata-asks-chapter.jsp?interviewId=3&volumeId=2&chapterId=3 influenced the creation]] of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening''! Later there was [[VideoGame/DeadlyPremonition a cult classic based heavily upon it]].

** In India, the live action ''Franchise/GiantRobo''series is almost universally adored amongst Gen X-er's and early Millennials whe it was brodcasted on the only television station in India at the timearoundthe mid 80's. It was so popular that it was rebroadcasted repeatedly well into the 90's and toy watches imitative of the one Daisaku Kusama/Johnny Sokko had were reportedly the best selling toy in India in the mid 80's. When Indian's think of Tokusatsu, they tend to think of ''Johnny Sokko and his Flying Robot'' because of it's sheer popularity.

** ''Series/GoseiSentaiDiaranger'' is also loved by Western Audiences, to the point that some consider the suits to be honorary Power Rangers. One of the biggest complaints of PowerRangersMegaforce among fans of both series was that, given that the series mark on the Power Rangers and the zords/monsters being particularly iconic to many long time fans, their dismissed use in Megaforce was a WasteOfAPerfectlyGoodCharacter. Many felt that they could have been used as a send up to the ties between SuperSentai and PowerRangers.

* ''Series/TheLateLateShow'': Craig Ferguson sometimes joked that his show was re-named ''Super Happy Fun Time Hour with Robot and Old Man'', implying his robot skeleton sidekick Geoff Peterson was more popular than him there.

* Famously, ''{{Baywatch}}'' was cancelled after one season by NBC due to poor ratings. However, when it was imported overseas, it became a massive success, which prompted Britain's LWT and other international channels to demand more episodes. It was the Hoff himself who helped to revive ''Baywatch''. The show went on for several more seasons/series and it is estimated that over one ''billion'' people across the globe watched it at some point. Never underestimate the international language of [[MsFanservice Pamela Anderson]] running in a swimsuit.

*** It's not so much that Zyuranger isn't adored, but rather that it's sandwhiched between two very beloved seasons that get high marks with Western Audiences as well.
** Series/KaizukoSentaiGokaiger is very well received by Western Audiences. Helps that it kicked off with a fight sequence involving every single ranger up to that point.
** ''Series/GoseiSentaiDiaranger'' is also loved by Western Audiences, to the point that some consider the suits to be honorary Power Rangers.
